Item description for 1 Corinthians: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by Jerome Murphy O'Connor...
Overview "Not for everyone is the voyage to Corinth," cautioned an ancient proverb. As the leading center of trade in the eastern Mediterranean, Corinth crackled with energy, diversion, bustle, and noise. It was a city of the self-made, the recently rich, and the busy. To the Corinthian Christians, Paul dispatched an urgent, emotion-laden letter in response to troubling reports from the flourishing young church. Writing to help them live out their faith in one of the largest and most notorious cities in the ancient world, Paul dealt with difficult questions regarding the physical body, social status, disagreement and disorder in church services, and Christian behavior in the midst of an intensely pagan environment. His forceful words of confrontation, correction, reconciliation, and blessing apply equally to believers in the prosperity and distraction of society today.
